Gérard Perotin & Guy-Joël Cipriani ‘Creative Music’

Conceived for dance training and exercices, this stunning percussion disc was produced in 1974 by legendary French dance patron Gilberte Cournand (1913-2005). The two percussionists, Gérard Perotin and Guy-Joël Cipriani, came from the National Opera Orchestra and were both familiar with ballet music and contemporary music ensembles. On Creative Music, they explore evocative textures and atmospheres from a large array of instruments, with a remarkable attention to nuances and variations. Rhythm is not much an option here, except on the hypnotic, fake-ethnic #5 Botofogo. However brief, this brilliantly recorded collection of percussion vignettes constantly captivates and surprises.

    Hi, just wanted to inform you that Sharebee is making trouble…again. A couple of days ago they said their servers were on “emergency repair”, now the site won’t load at all. I really hope they are not gone forever.

    Perhaps it would be wise to save the direct sharehoster links when using file spreaders like Sharebee, flameupload of multi, to avoid losing valid download links.

    Using filespreaders is a great service to us all, but it’s risky when the service shuts down all of a sudden.
